Deze week in het pakket / this week's package

It certainly feels like autumn again, and that means pumpkins are back in season! The Hokkaido pumpkin has a mild sweet, nutty flavor. You can of course prepare a delicious pumpkin soup, but it’s also very nice to bake it in the oven, where it combines really well with the kale or the parsnips. Or if you’re more of a sweet tooth, you can use it to bake a pumpkin pie. The roasted seeds make for a great snack, and also the skin is edible; as good as zero waste. Enjoy!

Your help is needed!

Your weekly vegetable package is the result of the collaboration of many participants from the Lekkernassûh community. In the past weeks, we’ve been struggling to get enough volunteers for the Wednesday market. Can you help out? Sign up using the Schedule market care.

Do you have a surplus of Timebank hours? Please spend them at the market or package-free shop, or (if you don’t manage to spend them all), please donate them to Lekkernassuh! Ater the summer, we have a big shortage of hours, because there are more going out than coming back in.

We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status before Sunday 8 pm if necessary.

Paying with Timebank hours
You can use your Timebank hours to pay for your vegetable package, but also, for example, cheese or products from the packaging-free store. You earn Timebank hours by, for example, helping on the market. Knowing more? Then look here.

Package-free shop
The package-free shop is open every Saturday from 11:00 am – 1:30 pm at the Helena. Longer opening hours call for more volunteers. Would you like to help sometime? Register via this link. More information about the store can be found here.
